Bible Application

thus says the Lord, “Behold, I am bringing evil on this place and on its inhabitants, even all the curses written in the book which they have read in the presence of the king of Judah.
Because they have forsaken Me and have burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke Me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore My wrath will be poured out on this place and it shall not be quenched.” ’
But to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of the Lord, thus you will say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel regarding the words which you have heard,
“Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and because you humbled yourself before Me, tore your clothes and wept before Me, I truly have heard you,” declares the Lord.
2 Chronicles 34:24‭-‬27‭NASB

What do you do with the word of God that you read? Do you contemplate its meaning? Do you meditate on it, mull it over in your mind? Do you take it to heart and apply it to your life? Does it convict you and draw you to repentance? Or. . .   Do you ignore it?

🌹King Josiah heard the word of God and responded humbly with a tender heart and God heard him.

Meditate

On the glorious splendor of Your majesty
And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
Psalms 145:5‭
All Your works shall give thanks to You, O Lord, And Your godly ones shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power;
To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts
And the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom.
Psalms 145:10-‬12 NASB

Do you know the glorious splendor of the majesty of God and His wonderful works? Look around you

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Psalms 19:1 NASB
Look at your family. Look in the mirror.

Bless the Lord, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the Lord, O my soul!
Psalms 103:22 NASB

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
Psalms 139:14 NASB

O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
Isaiah 25:1 NASB

When you meditate (to engage in thought or contemplation; reflect) on God through His word, prayer, personal intimate relationship with Him you can see His glory in His creation: from the landscape to the heavens; the work He is doing in you and others.

🌹Choose today to slow down, meditate on God’s glorious splendor and begin to notice His glorious works. You will be thanking God, be a blessing to Him as you can’t help but speak of His glorious kingdom and power.  You’ll want to tell the world God’s mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of His kingdom.

Are You Blessed?

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,

Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers. — Psalm 1:1-3

Dwelling

One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord And to meditate in His temple. — Psalms 27:4

What a worthy pursuit: “One thing I have asked . . . that I shall seek.” That I would have the awesome privilege to dwell*, to behold the beauty of the Lord (WOW!!!!!) and, as if that isn’t enough, to meditate in His temple.

We have an awesome privilege. Are you dwelling? Are you beholding His beauty? Are you meditating in His temple? (Remember that your body is the temple). 24/7 meditating, pondering, lingering.

Accurate Handling

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. — 2 Timothy 2:15

How can we accurately handle the Word of truth if we don’t know it?

So many have come to the altar seeking forgiveness from sin, asking Jesus into their heart and then walking out the door to live a life unchanged. What makes the difference? The Word of God. It is God’s love letter to His children where He tells us everything we need to know to live a life for Him. To live a life that will bring Him glory. To live a life unashamed. To live a life approved by God.

An approved workman tells others that Jesus is alive! He has risen from the dead and desires to walk daily with them. He wants the best for us so He guides us by His Word. When we tell others of Jesus, we need to be sure we are representing Him in truth. How can we know that we are speaking the truth of God? Open the Bible and study it. Read it everyday. Meditate on it. Memorize it. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We have the hope of being an adequate workman for God when we study the Word of God, accurately handling the word of truth so that we are fully equipped to fulfill God’s plan for us all.

Are you equipped? Are you ready? Diligently seek Christ through the Word of God.

Continually seeking Him,
